R&D Project

First zero emission research station

Schneider Electric provides energy management for the first zero emission polar station, Princess Elisabeth Antarctica.
The extreme conditions in which the on-board technologies must operate demonstrate the quality and reliability of Schneider Electric products and solutions.

Schneider Electric’s involvement in this project, designed, built and financed by the International Polar Foundation and its partners, demonstrates the Group’s commitment to the environment and the absolute necessity to reduce CO2 emissions.
Schneider Electric and the International Polar Foundation (IPF) present the technical part of the first “zero emission” polar scientific research station, Princess Elisabeth, before its installation in Antarctica.

Schneider Electric is handling all aspects of energy management for this exceptional project: electrical power supply, technical management, automation, supervision and remote control of the polar station.

The extreme conditions (violent winds, -40°C) in which the on-board technologies must operate will demonstrate the quality and reliability of Schneider Electric products and solutions.
